OUR DAY TRIP TO PINGTUNG, 屏東市! LOCAL TRAIN | TAIWAN'S FIRST CACAO GROWER| AMAZING SUSPENSION BRIDGE





In episode 36, we decide to go on a day trip to neighboring Pingtung (屏東市), an off-the-beaten-track laid-back charming weekend get-away. We take a cab ride up into the mountains to check out the Shan Chuan Glass Suspension bridge, one of the longest in Taiwan! Then we explore Taiwan’s very first cacao farm, where we get to taste some fresh cacao right off the tree at Choose Chius Chocolate! After some wandering, we stumble into a tiny town for a glimpse of traditional village life. Lastly, we head for Pingtung City’s bustling night market, where Gabe eats some fresh street-side sashimi!

*Note: after some more research, it turns out that the Shan Chuan suspension bridge is not the longest in Taiwan, as we claimed in the video.

    If you guys start adding Chinese subtitles, your channel is gonna blow up in Taiwan. Just be forewarned… subtitles are the most annoying thing in the entire world. Hope to see you guys around Kaohsiung someday!

    Hello, just to let you know that you can just swip your easy card and you will be only charged for the local train fare, but no guaranteed to have seats. For short distance, this is certainly fine. Therefore, use your easycard whereeve you go when using public tranport except Taiwan High Speed.

    This really brings back lots of positive memories from our family summer vacation 3 years ago. I’m glad U2 enjoyed this area too. I have to say Taiwan public transportation cost is so much cheaper than North America, especially those new hourly bike rentals racks by all train stations. Thanks again 4 supporting Taiwan + stay safe and healthy too.

    Actually that was the old time highway dated back 40 or 50 years ago. Taiwan's first national highway was completed in late 1970s. National highway is comparable to interstate highway in US. Apparently, the "old highway" is filled with traffic lights. However, it is a good route that connects towns & cities in Taiwan.

    As for the seafood fried noodle, I guess you ordered a sort of "three fresh" fried noodle. "Three fresh" means any three kinds of fresh seafood combination, e.g. clam, squid, shrimp, fish, etc. They are fried together with noodle. Since noodle absorb seafood flavor, it not only smells good, but also tastes wonderful.

    Not only there is "three fresh" fried noodle, but also "three fresh" fried rice. By the way, three fresh can be either seafood or meat, like pork, chicken and duck meat.
